This one was fun! Lots of layers of shading & lots of fun detail. I’m definitely learning to take my time to layer the values. I used to start a drawing & work from one area to the next, however Hammond has you start by laying down the darkest values first, then midtones, then blending & highlights and to add detail last. It has been a very valuable lesson.
